Each block is designed and then hand carved. I try to retain as much detail as possible while adding the stylistic effects of the carving process. A block can take anywhere from 2 to 8 hours to carve, depending on size and intricacy.
At the moment all the blocks are linoleum. This medium allows for solid, rich dark areas. Wood leaves a grain that reduces the depth of the image. However, that doesn't mean that some series won't be made in wood block in the future.
EACH PRINT IS PROTECTED BY TWO PIECES OF MAT BOARD AND A SHEET OF VELLUM, WHICH WILL GIVE YOU A SHORT WRITE-UP ON THE CAR OR THE PRINTING PROCESS. YOU WILL ALSO RECEIVE HANDLING INSTRUCTIONS.
